It was totally free with many activities suitable for kids to adults – bouncy castle with giant slide, pottery, releasing fire lanterns to the revamped lake, terrarium workshop and few other games.
The ‘funfair’ (as termed by this 4y7m2d) gave her a memorable night! From the point we left the PJ festival to getting home, going to bed, waking up, having breakfast and lunch – she has been talking about it!
We are ‘happy’ that we could create memories for her through simple, spontaneous fun! It was a free event and few roads away from our place! Sometimes it is about doing something out of routine!
Thank you Aunty Rachel Ong for this gift! She has been pestering me to do this with her since yesterday but I was rather ‘busy!! 😝 So today finally sat down with her to do it! She was initially very excited to start with it.
At the beginning, she even asked me to sit back and ‘mama play with your phone’ (as she wanted to ‘surprise’ me with the outcome) and she was singing/talking all by herself…..until she started to feel bored! 🤣🙄 Towards the end, she actually told me she ‘cannot’ complete it – but I insisted that she finished it up (lecture her – finish up something that she started 😒).
She did made some mistakes because she wasn’t too focus (or rather playful) and also she cut off the thread when I walked away to get more thread! 😒 Perseverance was there – as we sat there one hour to do – fully focus on this one activity! She has another bag of this craft – not too sure if she wants to do it again! 😂 Anyway, she was happy with the outcome!
Last week mama Rachel told me that she wanted to send me some ‘gifts’ on Monday. Since Heidi is off from school today, I invited them for an impromptu play date cum (simple) lunch too! I told Noelle about Heidi – new ‘girl’ friend and she was excited about it (the night before). She even reminded me to wake her up early the next day!
We ended up a fairly gentle play without (I don’t think there was any) fight – just gentle reminders to take turn and share. It was just Nikki who was messing around them! 🤣
After their lunch, Noelle wanted ice cream and so they queued up for it while I scoop it out. Noelle wanted to be the second recipient (after Nikki) but then I reminded her to give way to her ‘guest’ (Heidi) – and to much surprise, she actually gave it! 😊
This is our first meet up though we have been facebook friends for 3 years or so. Not that we speak to each other often, but we do follow each other’s facebook closely – so we are no strangers between us (the mummies). The meet up also allowed us to know each other more!
We had almost an hour fun with it! <video>
